I’m going to be asst coaching a 14/15 yo summer team in my home town and was putting together a practice plan today in preparation. I just wanted to share my notes, and hear what you all do with your pitchers in practice.
Here’s a 45-60 min pitcher’s practice the covers throwing, strengthening, fielding and conditioning which is what we did daily in the Cubs organization:
* 10 min stretching * 10 min throwing * 5-10 min pitching drills or lightweight dumbbell exercises * 20 min fielding drills (covering first base, backing up bases, fielding bunts, etc.) * 10-20 min running program on warning track (sprints, agility ladder drills)
